Take a look at some of Tuesday's midday movers:

The Dow Jones Industrial average is on track to close higher for a record 20th consecutive Tuesday.

United Health was the best performer on the Dow in midday trading, while Procter & Gamble was the worst.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq is also on track to close higher for its 10th consecutive Tuesday session.

Nine of ten S&P 500 large-cap sectors were in positive territory. Utilities sector was the only sector in the red, dragged down by Exelon, after Deutsche Bank downgraded its rating on the stock to "hold" from "buy" and cut its price target to $34 from $38.

Costco, Estee Lauder and Macy's were among retailers to hit new record highs.

Netflix traded lower after the company's much-hyped revival of the cult series, "Arrested Development." Netflix CEO Reed Hastings will be on CNBC Wednesday for an exclusive interview at 10:30 am ET.
